Step Ladders

Badger Ladder is your online resource for A-frame and platform fiberglass step ladders. With over 30 years of industry experience, we sell high quality products that meet standards as set by OSHA and ANSI. Unlike straight ladders, step ladders don’t lean against a wall for support. Rather, step ladders are designed to fold open to form an A-shape, and are equipped with four feet to provide excellent stability while you work. Their steps are also broader and deeper than the rungs of a straight ladder. This makes fiberglass step ladders perfect for construction projects, DIY projects, or work in and around your home.

• Our step ladders meet or exceed OSHA & ANSI regulations.
• One-year warranty against manufacturer defect.

Here is a breakdown of the different types of step ladders you'll see as you search for ladder(s) for your next project:

  • A-frame: An A-frame is a freestanding ladder that looks like the letter “A”. Specialized A-frames may feature a telescoping frame for use on stairs or ramps, or twin steps with steps on both arms of the “A” allowing two workers to use the ladder at the same time.
  • Platform: A platform ladder is a step ladder with a broad standing surface and a safety rail at the top. This configuration offers extra working reach for projects that require a higher reach.

Step Ladder FAQs

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions people have about step ladders:

Which step ladder is best for home use?

For many homeowners, an A-frame fiberglass stepladder is going to be the most versatile ladder type to choose for performing DIY projects, cleaning, decorating, or painting tasks around the house. Shorter all-purpose ladders or short work stands may also be beneficial, depending on the type of work that needs to be done. There are a number of brands of step ladder to choose from, such as Titan.

What is the best height for a step ladder?

If you're doing indoor work, you'll need either a stepstool, stepladder, platform, or multi-purpose ladder that is anywhere between 2-8 feet in height. However, the best height of step ladder will ultimately depend on the type of work you're performing. Here's some guidelines for step ladder size and the corresponding recommended highest standing level: (e.g., step ladder size: 7 ft., highest standing level: 5 ft.), (step ladder size: 8 ft., highest standing level: 6 ft.), (step ladder size: 10 ft., highest standing level: 8 ft.), etc.

What is the range size of a step ladder?

Typically, you'll find the range size of a fiberglass step ladder to be anywhere from 4 to 20 feet in height. Note: any step ladder that is less than 4 feet is considered to be a step stool or work stand, rather than an actual ladder.

When are you allowed to stand on the top step of a ladder?

Here are typical guidelines for how to safely use a ladder: you should never stand on the top two rungs of a step ladder, or on the top step of a ladder. Also, do not stand above the four rungs from the top of an extension ladder.

What is the difference between a Type 1 and Type 2 step ladder?

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recognizes 5 different ladder grades: Type I, Type II, Type III, Type IA, and Type IAA. Type I (Heavy Duty) and Type II (Medium Duty) can hold up to 250 pounds and 225 pounds, respectively. Type III (or Light Duty) can hold up to 200 pounds. Meanwhile Type IA and Type 1AA (both Extra Heavy Duty), hold up to 300 and 375 pounds.
